Despite the crazy weather we were having the night of your KCTS Show Premier, I did watch it and really enjoyed it. Learned a lot about many public art pieces in Seattle I wasn't aware of. Loved the motorcycling from piece to piece, liked John's easy knowledge and approach to everything. Very nice job all round!!! Hoping to see more shows like this on. Very best, Pamela Hey guys!

Comment on All About “You Call That Art?!” by W. A. Chapin http://youcallthatart.net/#comment-224 W. A. Chapin Sun, 05 Dec 2010 15:45:11 +0000 http:/?page_id=2#comment-224 I have been following both John T. Young’s writings and John’s own public art for years. His ability to talk about public art comes from the unique position of being a public artist, himself, for so many years. John’s approach is so different than that of many art historians who tend to talk at the art or at the viewer. John talks from a position of having been through the process himself. I was very impressed with his ability to encourage bystanders to open up and talk honestly and authentically about the art they were viewing. John made the art viewers he interviewed feel comfortable, letting them understand that there is no one right way to view the art. This parlayed into the television audience feeling comfortable and I think will encourage a feeling of proud public ownership from citizens of Seattle toward the art in their city. “You Call That Art” is exactly the type of arts programming the Pacific Northwest needs. In terms of hosting a show like this, John has it all: a huge knowledge base, a natural on-camera personality, a comfortable non-elitist approach and, importantly, he understands that this area is filled with intelligent people who want an intelligent public television show.

As a Seattle native I thought I knew most everything about our public art scene and have done many a field trip w/kids of all ages through many years appreciating it. To my happy surprise, John brought some new knowledge and history to pieces I thought I knew.....like peeling an onion. The whole production, from writers and techs to the host's comfortable humor was excellent and hopefully this will become a permanant piece of KCTS 9's weekly programming! LOVED IT!!!
